The Winners of the Musical Instrument Contest are…

Today we finally had our musical instrument contest. The criteria was to make an instrument that was creative and could play a recognisable tune. The children have been working on this for a few weeks and there was a fantastic range of ideas.
After a lot of hard decision-making Ms Scanlan thought that Fearne had made an instrument that played the best tune and Fiona, Hannah and Eveline and Isla and Kathryn’s groups had included the most creative ideas. Mrs Henderson came in to see them all and we both thought that everyone had worked really well on the task.

Welcome back and a Happy New Year

It has been lovely to see everyone back in school this year. Our topic for the first part of this term is Sound. After completing a formative assessment task, where we remembered what we already know about sound, we had a fun afternoon making string telephones and testing how well sound travels through different materials. 1 Star (2 votes, average: 1.00 out of 1)

Drones – STEM

This afternoon Emma Chittick came into class to teach us about the use of drones in the World of Work. We found out about how drones are used in lots of different jobs and then we got to go up to the hall to try some out.
We worked in pairs and had a drone and an iPad to fly the drone with. We had to fly the drones up to six posters that had been placed around the hall and then we take pictures of the posters and read tiny words on them. It was so much fun. There might be a few drones added to Christmas lists!
This is the first time that Emma has used the drones with primary school children and she was very impressed with the P6/7 class.

Game design

This afternoon we had a fantastic game design session with Emma Chittick. We used arcade.makecode.com to design our own game. It was quite hard to follow the instructions but everyone managed to make their own game. They looked really good.
